Mission Statement and Profile:

Our firm focuses on helping clients achieve their goals efficiently, effectively and at a reasonable cost. We are an experienced law firm with substantial expertise in simple as well as complex business, estate planning and real estate transactions and also land use work with various governmental agencies.

The firm was established by Charles (Chuck) Meibeyer in 1989 in Napa Valley. Through our role as trusted counsel to the wine industry our firm has helped numerous wine industry clients establish, sell, or purchase wineries or vineyards, handled grape purchase contracts and vineyard lease agreements, and provided business succession planning advice. In addition to providing assistance to our wine industry clients, our firm has handled countless real estate sales, commercial and residential leases, and tax-deferred exchanges, as well as the formation and counseling of partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies for clients in a wide range of industries. Recently, our firm expanded its services to Sonoma County establishing an office in Healdsburg where we can more conveniently provide the same legal services to our Sonoma County clients.
